The history of designing a modern system for drinking water quality monitoring and managing in St. Petersburg


Efficient quality control of the manufactured product is one of the main tasks for any production. Of particular importance is the management of the production process in case the product being produced is the basis for the life support and health of the consumer. The functioning of public water supply systems is of paramount importance, primarily in terms of reliability and safety [1]. The need to find a new paradigm for the safety of drinking water supply as an integral part of the national security of Russia was timely estimated by Felix Vladimirovich Karmazinov. In 2004, a vector was plotted for the development of water treatment systems inclusive of replacing the water quality control system based on discrete sampling for laboratory analysis, recording water quality change events post factum. With regard to the water supply security paradigm, this does not correspond to the level of risks from premeditated actions, nor to the modern engineering capabilities of online monitoring. One of the priority areas in the field of improving the safety of public water supply was the task of designing advanced monitoring systems that provide for predicting, identifying in a timely manner and preventing deterioration of the quality of processed, stored and transported water to the consumer. The chronology of the stages of implementing online monitoring systems for the control of the water quality and safety at the water supply facilities in St. Petersburg is given.
